about












Hi, I’m Constantina, welcome to my website!
I am an artist, illustrator and graphic designer from Montreal. I studied Fine Art and Graphic Design in Montreal and although I was interested in education, drawing and design, my path led me to work as a technical illustrator in aviation for twenty years. There, I learned how to create images that provided instructions, using pencil, mechanical ink pens and drafting tools, and eventually with digital software.

As an independent creative, I developed my skills further with Adobe software and pencil techniques. I mainly create illustrations using digital lines combined with hand-drawn pencil textures. My interest and expertise is in developing images that explain concepts and processes and provide visual information. Minimalist design and shapes and textures found in nature are what inspire me the most. Recently, I began exploring trees and plant life with basic photography and my sketchpad journal which have inspired me to create contemporary botanical art that I sell online. Art prints of my work are available in my online shop FILARIO

I have illustrated two educational books by self-published authors and I am available for illustration and design work for book covers, educational
and non-fiction publications and information graphics.
